West Palm Beach, FL – Lion Country Safari is pleased to welcome two additional male lions to the safari. Boone and Vander (both 6 years old) relocated from the North Carolina Zoo in late September to join Lion Country Safari’s pride of lions. Following their arrival, Boone and Vander have spent some time acclimating and are getting to know the other lions through a monitored introduction process. Boone and Vander are now visible to the public in the lion habitat intermittently.
Lion Country Safari is home to 11 African lions. African lions are currently listed as Vulnerable, with populations having been severely diminished in the past 25 years, due largely to habitat loss. Lion Country Safari is proud to support lion conservation and to participate in several of AZA’s Species Survival Plan (SSP) and Saving Animals From Extinction (SAFE) programs to save species.
